It was a good night to be a Democrat, as the party's candidates won a slate of closely watched races stretching from Virginia to Washington state on Tuesday. At the gubernatorial level, Democrat Ralph Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie in a hotly contested race in Virginia, which many analysts viewed as a referendum on President Donald Trump. The victory was "a backlash to Trump and Trumpism, pure and simple," wrote Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. read more

The Coliseo is the biggest concert hall in San Juan, Puerto Rico. But since Hurricane Maria devastated the island a month ago, it's become the center of a massive effort to feed tens of thousands left hungry by the storm -- an effort led by celebrity chef José Andrés. "We're about to reach the million and a half [meals] served -- a vast majority of them hot meals," says Andrés, who is known for his upscale restaurants in Washington, D.C., and for canceling his plans to open one in Donald Trump's D.C. hotel. Nearly 80 percent of Puerto Rico remains without electricity. read more

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted to ban abortion after 20 weeks. Now, the GOP is officially aiming to ban abortions considerably earlier -- at six weeks, before many women even realize they're pregnant. ... In a statement emailed to Teen Vogue, NARAL Pro-Choice America senior vice president Sasha Bruce said, "the GOP's crazy obsession with banning all abortions in this country knows no end, no boundary, and no common sense. "Americans are clear: they want their elected officials addressing the crises our country faces instead of wasting time and taxpayer dollars attempting to ban abortion," Bruce said.

Hours before Donald Trump was set to huddle with Senate Republicans to rally support for his tax cut measure, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker delivered an absolute bludgeoning of the President. And even that may be an understatement.

In an interview with CNN's Manu Raju, Corker said the President consistently doesn't tell the truth, dodged on whether Trump should have the nuclear codes, said Trump wasn't a role model for children, said he would not ever support him again and repeatedly suggested that Trump "debases" the country.


"That's because the military has learned by experience that the kinder/gentler war policies of the leftists do NOT succeed and result in many more casualties of our own."

It's not the political pursuasion, remember Nixon? It's the type of war it is, it's not like WWII where we had an enemy that wore uniforms, had allegiance to a different nation, etc. Since Vietnam we have been fighting gorilla war enemies, it is eventually realized by our country at the end of each of these conflicts, that they are unwinnable, very costly in lives and dollars and really accomplish nothing. Your attempt to politicize the way we fight wars is stupid, it isn't about who is in charge it is about the unnecessary use of force in countries where the population does not support us, does not want us there and in nations that have never posed a serious threat to us. I swear, it really does seem like our nation became divided over Vietnam and has remained that way ever since because your side could never admit you were wrong about that war and then multiplied the damage with additional unnecessary and equally unwinnable wars against nations that never attacked us. To this day, folks like you are still carrying a grudge because us hippies were right about Vietnam and your side was completely wrong but still can't admit it. I wonder how many of you can even recognize the irony of Trump being our commander in chief and even bragging that he knows more about fighting wars than the generals while he, himself, was a draft dodger during Vietnam? And you guys voted for him and support him as you did G.W. Bush, also a draft dodger. I swear this reality in America would be a funny novel or comedy movie but not funny at all in reality. As I've said before, everyone who voted for G.W. Bush twice should have lost their right to vote forever because of it.
